Meet Our Caregivers

Meet Our Comfort Keeper Caregivers

The special individuals who deliver our unique brand of in-home care (we call them Comfort KeepersĀ®) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, expert, and compassionate care services.

We are highly committed to our hiring and training process to ensure the absolute best care for our clients and great customer service for their families. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best in-home caregivers. Only those who pass each step of this process go on to our complete and intensive training program to deliver our special brand of in-home care. While our caregivers are highly qualified, what truly sets them apart is their genuine passion for caregiving.

Additionally, all Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. Our in-home caregivers are bonded, insured, and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

At Comfort Keepers Grayslake, we have almost 70 caregivers, all of whom are incredibly kind, compassionate, and caring. Meet some of them and learn more by reading their bios below, or contact us for more information.
